Miami-Dade is hoping to develop 125 acres of county-owned land, either as an industrial park or possibly a school campus.

FedEx has already expressed interest in the property, which is adjacent to the Homestead Air Reserve Base, Commissioner Dennis Moss told Miami Today.

“FedEx has shown a strong interest in wanting to develop a distribution facility there,”Moss said. “They’d be a great anchor development at that particular location and would be somewhat of a magnet for other types of uses.”

On Monday, Miami-Dade commissioners gave preliminary approval to request expressions of interest in the site.

“We want to gauge what kind of interest there is out there in trying to get the land developed,” said Moss. [Miami Today]Christopher Cameron
